Warlord is nice for a 0pt tertiary. It gives you an aura that causes enemies to miss 5% more. Pretty ballin'.

So what your saying is that more mobility is bad. Kay.

I'm saying 5% miss > a second charge...

Reaver mainspec, not going to have enough points in Paladin to get a charge for quite some time. Champion was a natural choice in that respect. Can't beat a charge. :)

Unless you really need the mitigation, there isn't much point mainspeccing Paladin until you get your Balance of Power (reflective shield) / Tip of the Balance (healing through BoP). Weak aoe, general lack of self healing. Reaver is quite awesome for both of those.


Also:

#show Chain Heal
cast Retaliation
cast Chain Heal

Got my Rogue created and played for 20 mins this morning, woke up at 7pm (PST) and there was a 3 hour 500+ que. I only had 45 min so I rolled an alt on a pvp server that had medium pop, started with an A, think its one of the new servers they just made. I expect there to be a que time tomorrow morning when I get off work as well. Also everytime I've logged in the environment has been stable, no lag, no DC so thats good.

Has anyone found any theorycrafting Rift sites yet? More preferably one with rogue information.

I wish they had an Armory, but they said they aren't going to implement that any time soon, if ever.

I think this build picks up alot of the good aoe and self healing from reaver while still getting the damage mitigation of Paladin: http://rift.zam.com/en/stc.html?t=1cAhE.xzqph0k.ExRusciszMz

I'm still not sure how I'm gonna spec leveling up, as you basically can't do IT aoe pulls without having Plague Bringer :/. So I may Reaver main for a little bit. But I'm a Paladin at heart!

Also, are you going to have so many points in reaver that you can't get 18 in Paladin??? I suppose if you were going the 51pter route, you would.

Patience, young reaveradin. I'm currently level 20ish; I certainly don't have 18 points to spend in an off-tree at the moment. :)

Yeah, that's the big problem. My guildmate hit 18 last night and was like, "Eh, I could tank IT, but I won't have Plague Bringer yet so I'll just DPS." In that case Reaver main would've been better for him, but I think he just didn't wanna tank anyway ;)

None-the-less, as daunting as this talent tree system was when the game first hit some of the latter betas, I feel quite comfortable with it now. Great job in making some really unique and promising combos if you ask me.

I must admit i'm playing a cheesey Riftblade/Champion finisher spec where my fiery burst is hitting for a total of 300+ at lvl 12 >.<

It's fun to dps for a change but i'll likely grab a Pally tanking spec as soon as I hit Meridian and can get the souls.

Amen brutha. Riftblade/Champion/0ptBeastmaster here. Pet adds some nice free DPS. I really like Riftblade and Champion has some pretty fantastic synergy. I'm a little irked that they took the DOT component from Flame Spear, but it having no cooldown means that I use it as an AP builder over Searing strike since it hits harder....kinda retarded imo.

Pretty much the exact same!

If you haven't yet, wait til you get Rift Surge, it's nice vs mobs but it's super lol in pvp, you destroy everyone. I expect a nerf to come soon, not because it needs one, but because people are too stupid to look at a debuff and cleanse/stop slamming their face into the kb for 5 seconds, thus they raise hell on the forums, and mostly, they still think it's flame spear killing them >.<

It's a great way to sort out the smarter players from the bad though, I guess a good example of the same in WoW would be people who keep running around with the "if you move you take damage!" lightning debuff in Halls, except this one tends to kill them if they keep casting :D

Yeah, that's like all the screams of nerf that are/were happening with Sabateur Rogues. What people don't realize is that it takes 6 or 7 GCDs for the big "boom" to go off. If you aren't paying attention to your debuffs, you will go boom.

Reaver aoe is pretty awesome. Still lacking one more dot to really nail it, but I haven't encountered a single class/spec able to pull off me without taunting.

Had a little trollol moment in Granite Falls. I lost count of the amount of invasions we fought back (cough corpse run), but it took ages. Think I gained half a level there.

<- Work impaired


Is Rift already OUT? or is it still beta?

I've been following the thread and it does look like something I'd be willing to drop a little investment in to try something new...

afterall I pay 40-60 bucks for a shiny new xbox game that only gets maybe 1 month of play .. why not do it with an MMO?

P.S It would be cool if we could make a little "list" of tankadins playing on server, faction, name/ class

The beta ended, and the servers opened for people who pre-ordered only. The game launches for everyone this week.

Official release date is March 1st, but for those that pre-ordered you could participate in headstart which started Feb 24th.

March 4th in Euro land. Going to be weird seeing people ride around on non tortoise mounts (oh Tartagon, how I hate thee)

Since people above already answered about the release date and headstart, I thought I'd use your P.S. to update my server info. Keenblade had too big of a queue at launch, so me and my friends rolled Defiant side on Laethys. PvE server, no queue to log in.

If anyone rolls a toon on this server, feel free to add Tin to your friend list. Warrior that's leveling reaver/champion/beastmaster.
